BRAVE : NUART x AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL PANEL DEBATE
11·00 –11·40 Brave : Nuart x Amnesty International present the case of Human Right's activist Sakris Kupila
Location: Tou Scene, Kvitsøygata 25
Panel debate with Sakris Kupila (FI), Ricky Lee Gordon (ZA) and Annamaria Guttierrez (CU/NO), hosted by Sara MacNeice, Head of Global Campaigns, Amnesty International
Adding his voice to Amnesty International's Brave campaign, Ricky Lee Gordon will create a mural of Sakris Kupila - a human rights defender from Finland who has fought tirelessly for transgender rights in the face of harassment and intimidation - as part of this year's Nuart Festival.
The 'Brave' campaign calls for an end to attacks against those defending human rights, in a context of increasing global hostility against activists. The campaign focuses on people who are taking enormous risks to stand up for our rights through exploring the power of art to push boundaries and stimulate debate.
Joining the panel debate will be Stavanger's Head of Municipal Council for Culture and Sport, Annamaria Gutierrez, who was instrumental in the Venstre (Left) Party's successful attempt to abolish the law which made it obligatory for anyone in Norway to be sterilised when undergoing the legal process of changing their gender.
